I'm getting bored of these and looking for something new and sexy, so I'm putting these up for sale. $1600 takes them home. Shipping is on the buyer unless we come to an agreement. Not in any particular hurry to sell as they're off the car for the winter.

The important parts:
Rays 57 Ultimate
18x8.5 5x100 +48 56.15 hub bore (direct Subie fitment, no centric rings required)
Custom White powder coat
BFGoodrich KDW2 T/A tires 235/35/18 (within .1" of OEM diameter so your speedo will be virtually spot on).

As a whole, the faces of all 4 are practically flawless for white wheels with 7500 miles on them. There are a few nicks in the powdercoat on 3 of the 4 and a few blemishes from tar and crap on white wheels. I cleaned them up as best as I could, and I'm sure a little more elbow grease will take care of that. The tires still have tons of life on them. The KDWs are known for long life for a summer performance tire.

One of the wheels met up with a chunk of road in a construction zone and has some rash on the inside of it, as noted in the picture. That took a chunk out of the sidewall of the tire, so that had to be replaced (all 4 tires are still within the 2/32" spec). That wheel has the crap that discount used to mount the tire still on the inside of it (again, some elbow grease will get rid of most of it, but it's on the inside, so it's not a big deal). Some of the powdercoat got taken off with the wheel weights when they rebalanced that wheel after replacing the tire.

A little bit about these wheels in particular. They are custom everything for Subaru fitment. Specific hub bore, specific bolt pattern, specific offset. They weigh 18.5 pounds, which is really light for an 18x8.5. Only 2 sets of these in WRX fitment made it to the US that I'm aware of, and Ravspec sold them both over a year ago, so you'll probably not see another set of these on a Subaru. I took home "Most Baller Wheels" at the Midwest Stance Car Show this summer with these wheels. If you do a google image search, my exact wheels pop up on the first page.

The wheels were $400/ea, powder coat was $50/ea, and the tires run about $175/ea. Throw in the mounting and balancing and this is a $2500+ set up. I also have some red Work Lugs I can throw in if I get my asking price of $1600.

And now the long awaited pics.
